Contemplating a first Mother’s Day
My daughter’s now a mother
with a daughter of her own.
The one I carried cradles one she loves.
Last Mother’s Day we first would learn
that Ally was with-child.
Amazing news as if from God above.
A baby is a miracle.
The one that you conceive
as well as those conceived by those you’ve birthed.
Tiny replicas of grace.
They are Heaven’s richest blessings here on earth.
This Mother’s Day I thank the Lord
for wonders to behold.
My beautiful granddaughter with her mom.
The way my wife just beams with pride
to see our progeny.
A pieta of comfort, peace and calm.
